Default Blue sea 7610 acr combined for no reason??

I installed this about 1 month ago and called tech line to discuss the installation, he said it would work fine and it has been. It will close when charge is present and open about 2 mins after charge goes away. I was in the boat earlier and noticed my hatch, blowers and accessories were live with main batt switch off. I found the acr combined but the light wasn't on. This shouldn't be combined just sitting in the drive. I am picking up my charge from the stud on the back of the main batt switch that goes to both starter, that way i can pull charge off both alts evenly. He said that was ok too. Has anyone had any problems out of these. Man, I don't want to overnite and be pulling off my house and both cranking batteries.....talk about stranded!! oh, i do have shore power hooked up and running an onboard charger, a guest smart...one lead to house and one to one cranking battery.. but it has been working fine...I'll call them 2morrow.

They do connect across when charging... The parallel should go back to Off after a few minutes without the charger.
We have been using the BEP version without issue. It did have us wondering why they were hooked up while charging....

The parallel switches do engage while the engines run as well... They are simply trying to maintain 13+ volts in each battery.

Take the lead from your charger off your start battery and only connect to your house battery. Let the ACR do it's job to connect both batteries when on shorepower chargeing.

Did think about putting both charger leads on house, for the start batteries will always stay topped off. Just got off the phone with scott at blue sea and the acr is working per design today. I will monitor its operation, I want to make sure it opens during overniting. Thanks guys.
